For sometime now I have been thinking about disability theology . I have been reading theories, books and watching videos. I have been thinking about where the junction point for working with women who are marginalized for various reasons and people with disabilities meet. I have been working with a dream about Jesus as a person with autism and the growing realization that it was a metaphor or picture story way of explaining disability theology. Jesus by his death on the cross and resurection with the marks still present enteres into the world of persons with disabilities. By his association with marginalized women and with his Mother being a single parent he was born from a woman and imaged with her as a child concieved pre wed lock.
Here the two meet . In the gospels...it is the place disability and women meet . That is where and with who Jesus spent a lot of time.
